UPDATE (12:52am):

The Obama campaign and Howard Dean's 50 state strategy has remade the electoral map. Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Iowa, Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada were Bush wins in 2004 that have now gone blue. As of this writing, we're still awaiting races that are too close to call in Indiana, North Carolina and Missouri. Montana and Alaska are the remaining two states that haven't projected a winner but should remain red.

Chris Shays has lost his Congressional election which now means that there are no Republican Congressmen representing any of New England. None.

UPDATE (1:40am): The new map. (Gray = still too close or too early to call as of 1:40am)

UPDATE (1:45am): Rumor has it that Obama is choosing Rahm Emmanuel as his Chief of Staff and Emmanuel has accepted!

That's it for me - I have to get up for work in four hours. I'll continue tomorrow. Goodnight! I think tomorrow is going to be a good day.


Neither North Carolina nor Missouri have been called.

North Carolina: 50%-50% SPLIT

Obama 2,101,986
McCain 2,089,826

Obama + 12,160

Missouri: 49%-49% SPLIT

McCain 1,442,577
Obama 1,436,724

McCain + 5,853

The reason these numbers are important is because in 2004, Bush won in NC 54%-46% and MO 53%-46%. Another amazing turnaround is that Indiana is now blue where Bush won in 2004 60%-39%.
